"Engaging Members in the Development of a Health Assessment and Behavior Change Tool to Support the YMCA of Middle Tennessee’s Strategic Goals for Healthy Living in Our Community"
The YMCA of Middle Tennessee is nation’s eighth largest Y association in the country, serving more than 360,000 people of all ages each year. As the region’s leading nonprofit dedicated to improving health and well-being, the organization seeks to improve outcome measurement for its members to better demonstrate how involvement with Y programs positively impacts the health of its members.
The need to improve outcome measurement led to an ongoing and growing research partnership, and this talk will address how the partners launched their research with member input to ensure the long-term success of an assessment protocol (well-being survey) that will soon pilot at the Margaret Maddox YMCA. In time, the organization hopes to utilize the survey at all of its location to both enable members to monitor their health improvement and allow the Y to continually evaluate its program effectiveness.
Presenters: Ted Cornelius, Vice President of Health Innovation for YMCA of Middle Tennessee, and David Schlundt, Ph.D. Director of the Qualitative Research Core, VICTR and Associate Professor of Psychology, VU.
Location: Downtown YMCA, 1000 Church Street, 4th Floor Conference Room (please park in the garage adjacent to the front entrance and indicate you are there for the CRP meeting)
